How to SEO & SEM your Russian sites

Russian SEO and SEM with press releases, plus 25 press release submitting sites

Not too long ago, I started experimenting with press releases for my Russian site SEO and SEM. I would like to share my thoughts about it with you, and give you a listing of 25 press release sites, where you can submit your press release absolutely free. That is one of a very good SEO practices in Runet.

Press realease SEO

Press-release – is an official message about the company, some achievement, current event or some other occasion.  Certainly, in most cases, press-releases are used for promotion of company sites, online stores, travel agencies websites, corporate sites, design studios, etc. Guess, some personal website or blog, cannot use press release Russian SEO, since nobody will want to publish it.  Though, there could be found solutions too…

Talking about results right away. In just 3 days after submitting my press-release on the listed websites, Google have indexed 19 of them, Yandex – 5.  Most of them were published with the direct link with the appropriate anchor text to promoted site and got a major SEO effect.

Many sites that publish press releases (we’ll call them press release submitters), have high PR, high traffic rate, are trusted and honorable websites. Search engine crawlers literally live there. Actually, press release submitters can bring many target visitors themselves, not just SEO and SEM effect.

By SEO effect press release submitters are much better, than article submitters which could be a Russian SEO specifics. My experiments shows that press release publication brings much bigger effect, than article publication (if comparing free ways of it) despite of the fact, that there are much less press release submitters in Russian Internet (Runet), than articles submitters. Of course, it does not mean that you need to refuse of article publications. The keystone to success is in quality of articles, not in their quantity.

So, how to make a good press release? Let’s find out, how press releases should look. For this we go to press release center in – there is a huge collection of press releases. Select the necessary subject. Then press releases will be broken in months, dates and publication time. Simply click and read some press releases. Take some press releases as an example. Then write your own press release. Certainly, I do not urge you to copy it partially or completely. Please respect the copyright, in Russian SEO copyright it is custom to do so. You can also order a press release copyrighting at the appropriate freelancer or agency . Do not forget to fill correct anchors on your links and review landing pages for a better SEO effect in future.

Russian SEO with press release publication provides following advantages:

  • A number of external links to promoted site increases, as a result site positions in SERP go up (SEO gain);
  • Organic grow of target visitors (Marketing gain);
  • Press releases positively influence brand awareness (PR gain);
  • free of charge (if no other specialists used, need only your effort and time);
  • Press release submitters do not demand setting of any backlink on your site;
  • Probably, your press release will be reposted by other information resources (mostly with your links and anchors).


Where to publish the press release?

I’m sharing my database of press release submitter sites. I’ve collected this database manually. All of this sites are indexed by Yandex and Google, so that publishing there is a real SEO gain.

The majority of press release submitters need registration and are strongly moderated, so it is better not to abuse and not to do direct advertise in it. I advise you to place not more than 2 direct links for each press release. Press release should not be big size text. I usually limit its size to one page (about 1800 symbols) just like you do for a regular SEO copyrighting.

To publish a press release on popular Internet MSM and information portals there is a useful paid Russian SEO service B2Blogger.

Take into account that some press release submitters accept only issue-related materials (for example, only about IT, finance etc.). Some accept press releases only via e-mail.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  5. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and
    say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog
    writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
